Shaw Shank - _Beautiful Bedlam_
by: Paul Schwarz (3 out of 5)
A very nicely produced ten minutes composed centrally of the angsty baggy-pants metal Korn and Limp Bizkit peddle, with some of the more hip-hop / DAT machine-esque sounds of the latter making their prescence felt. There are some nicely placed and unexpected sections of double-bass drums and (on "Caimera") a definite bias towards the more suicidal, depressive tones of Misery Loves Co. and Nine Inch Nails. Unfortunately, however, nothing presented on _Beautiful Bedlam_ is overly adventurous and little of it truly grabs me by the throat. Shaw Shank are promising musicians and surprisingly competent songwriters, but their material is, as yet, nothing particularly remarkable.
